Alcohol and breast cancer

“Fewer than 4/10 (38%) of North East women are aware of the link between alcohol and breast cancer – despite evidence that any level of regular drinking raises the risks.

That is the finding of a new survey from Balance as a campaign launches across the region urging women to reduce their drinking and reduce the risks.

It also found that nearly one in five North East women (19%) are drinking above the Chief Medical Officer’s recommended limit of drinking no more than 14 units per week to stay “low risk” from a range of health conditions, including cancer .

Balance, the North East Alcohol Office, is relaunching its Spot of Lunch campaign across TV, online and Facebook in a bid to inform women across the region to help them make more informed choices.”
